KIDS PICK THEIR FAVES ON NICKELODEON AWARDS
Orange Blimpies and Green Slime Provide the Color Scheme for Annual Tween Shindig
King of Queens and Paul Bart: Mall Cop lead turned MC-for-a-night Kevin James opened Saturday's 23rd annual Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards with a hip-hop dance routine as an angelic Adam Sandler serenaded him while dangling overhead. The bit also introduced the evening’s recurring theme, as green slime spurted over the first few rows of the audience.

Later in the show, held at UCLA's Pauley Pavilion, Katy Perry was blasted with slime (check out the photo in Rumor Mill) when presenting the Favorite Movie Actress blimpie to Miley Cyrus. Co-presenter Jonah Hill grabbed Perry before she could embrace the 17-year-old singer-actress with a slimy hug. "I can't see anything," said an apparently surprised Perry. "Why does it taste like boogers?"

Twilight werewolf Taylor Lautner picked up orange blimpies for Favorite Actor and half of Cutest Couple, with Kristen Stewart. "I have to admit I have always dreamt of winning one of these orange blimps," he quipped during the first of his acceptance speeches.

Other “Favorites” included Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel for Movie, Up for Animated Movie, Jim Carrey for Voice From an Animated Movie for A Christmas Carol, Mario Kart for Videogame, iCarly for TV Show, American Idol for Reality Show, SpongeBob SquarePants for Cartoon, Dylan Sprouse for TV Actor and Selena Gomez for TV Actress.

The ubiquitous Black Eyed Peas took home Favorite Music Group, while Jay-Z won for Male Singer and Taylor Swift (who else?) got Female Singer. She also snagged Favorite Song for "You Belong With Me."

Perhaps the evening's biggest celeb was Michelle Obama, who won the ceremony's Big Help award for her "Let's Move" campaign to cut down on childhood obesity. The honor is part of Nick's own "Millions on the Move" campaign. Over the next few months, the network will feature PSAs to encourage kids to stay active and promote activities that help the environment, the AP noted in its coverage.

The awards are voted on by fans, with more than 115 million votes received this year.
